On a personal level, Dave was born on Columbus Day in Chicago, Illinois. He stands 6'5" tall and has natural curly blond hair, hazel eyes and an affable character.
Country Dave's laid-back nature and personality is the reason people gravitate to him. His many imitations of all the country "stars" voices is amazing and nothing short of incredible.
He also imitates people's speaking voices and was even expelled one week for imitating his high school principal, by telling the students over the loudspeaker to come to the office.
When he was in his 20's and before he shipped out for the Persian Gulf he sang and played before a large audience in Virginia Beach, Virginia and when he was actually at the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Sea, he sang and played for his shipmates, numbering about 7,000.
In 1993 he took a trip down to Nashville, where he sang in the ..Don Reed' production of "Starborn Records" and he said he would promote him, but the cost was prohibitive. He met Jack Patton who was interested in him after he sang at Mickey Gilley's place right in Nashville. He met Chuck Seals who wrote, "Crazy Arms" and Johnny Rivers, Mel Fender, (Freddie's brother), Jack Greene and Jim Ed Brown.
In 1997 there was a "Star Search" in Mundelein that he won, by singing his original song he had written, "Childhood Days." He received a $2500.00 dollar prize which consisted of recording his songs at "Big Mama's" in Jackson, Tennessee, and that was his reason for leaving Illinois, but when he actually went there to have them honor his prize, they told him he needed to use their musicians and band, so needless to say, he didn't have the money and is still working hard to reach his dreams as a truck driver/singer/songwriter.
In November of 1998, Dave moved to Tennessee as he wanted to be closer to the country music industry in Nashville. Country Dave is following his Dream and hopes to continue to find great opportunities in the Music Business.
